Stories of God

Date 13th May 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage 2 Timothy 3:10-17

God Loves Children!

Date 13th May 2012  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Matthew 19:13-15

The Serious Side of Child’s Play

Date 08th May 2012  by Ray Rus  Bible passage Matthew 21:16

Losing My First Love

Date 29th April 2012  by Bevan Burnes - Elder  Bible passage Revelation 2:1-7
